Events at the Driving Park: Were Interesting
" and Well Contested.
GOOD TIE BY PAYNE'S DUKE
Won the 2.50 Class Race with Ease.
Time for the Half Mile in the First
Heat, 1.15 1-2 Pee Dee and Maud
L Gave Good Accounts of Them
selvesFanny Blair Won 2.40 Class
The racing programme at the Driv
ing park yesterday was of exciting in
terest and was witnessed by a well
pleased audience. These .weekly cards
of the Gentlemen's Driving elub are
becoming more popular, as the good
sized number of the fair sex who occu
pied the grand stand yesterday indi
cated. One feature, however, that made the
audience impatient, was the repeated
scoring in each beat requireed to get
the horses off in a buueb. The first
beat of the first raee was the most
tiresome. Five horses Little Agnes,
owned by . J. Goodwin ; Poor Riohard,
by Dr. Houser; Billy, by C. M. Sander
son; Maud, by Walter Jenny n, and
Beauty, by Dr. J. L. Wentz, were en
tered in the first raee in the 3-minute
Mand was the cause of delaying the
start Dy her sulklness;atlast after over
half a dozen attempts the quintette
got under the wire pretty well together
and the word was given to go.j
Little Agnes bad the pole and held
It to the quarter where Poor Richard
and Beauty passed ber. Both of these
horses broke coming down the stretch
and Little Agnes surged forward win
ning the race in the fast time of 1.19.
Second plnce was given to -Beauty by
the judges. Dr. Houser. the owner of
Poor Richard, made a determined ob
jection to the deoislon but was over
ruled. All races were half mile heats, the
best two out of three. The second
heat of the 3-minute class was taken
by Little Agnes in 1.18, a second faster
than the time in the first race, This
heat was not an exciting one.
MOST INTERESTING RACE.
The second race, the 2.40 class, was
the one most interesting. Bat three
horses were entered, Compeer, a sorrel
gelding, by F. H. Jermyo, Maud L a
chestnut mare, bv C. S. Seainaos, and
Fanny Blair, by G. M. Shelly. Three
beats were necessary to decide this
race. Ia the first Maud L. won easily,
Fanny Blair second and Compeer third.
The second beat was a neek and neck
contest from start to fl.iish between
Fanny Blair and Maud L.. the former
winning by a length. Compeer was
distanced. The third beat was a hot
one and the sympathies of the audience
were with Maud L., who was by far
the speediest animal on the track yes
terday. She had an off day and disap
pointed the expectant ones every time
by getting oil ber feet and flying in
the air. Fanny Blair won the raee,
but If she had two lengths farther to
g o Mand L. would have captured it
The third race, in the 2. 35 class, was
conspicuous by the ease with which
Dr. Charles Hill's big bay gelding,
Jaok, won both heats. Four horses
were entered, Magnolia, Dr. J. L.
Wentz; Keeley, G. M. Shelly; John,
Dr. G. E. Hill; Jack, Dr. Charles Hill,
Magnolia was the favorite, bnt she was
a complete disappointment. There was
no interest taken in either beat because
Jack wss so far superior to the other
three that none of them eonld come
within ten lengths of him. In the sec
ond heat be went in the air for an in
stant and fell back a little, bat with
big, heavy strides broke to the front
again and came down the stretch like
THAT LAST RACE.
The fourth raoe, in the 2.50olass,
was rather envious of the first, and
made a desperate effort to tire the pa
tience of the spectators. Matt Dale's
bay mare. Pee Dee, imitated the ex
ample of Mand in the first race and
prevented a start at least a half dozen
times by galloping from the pole to
the wire. Five horses were entered:
Duke, by L. T. Payne; Frank H., by
F. C. Hazaard; Pet Hand, by Frank
Spencer; Pee Dee, by Matt Dale, and
Valley Boy, by Levi Patterson.
Duke bad the pole and kept the lead
to the quarter. There the horses
bunched together, and until the stretoh
was reaohed there was no telling whieh
would win. Duke, however, went
under the wire first, followed closely
by Pet Hand and Frank H. .
The second heat was mneh similar
to the first, except that Valley Boy
showed up well and gave Duke a bard
battle for first place.;

COLORED CITIZENS MEET.
Spirited Addre.a.s Before the Keystone
In noint of political enthusiasm no other
assemblage of Republicans held this cam
paign lias exceeded the meeting of the
Keystone Colored clnb of 250 members,
held last night at 415 Oakford court.
The meeting wus presided over by Secre
tary Samuel Porter in the abseuce of the
rottular chuirinau, George V. Brown. The
club decided not to send any delegates to
tlie State couveution of league clubs, but
took steps to bring out the uuited support
of the colored voters of Scranton for the
Kepublicuu htato and county tickot. The
club wisely decided to identify itself with
no political faction, hut promised to let
every man use his judgment ana abide by
vuo uecision or ine convention.
Another noint that anncial Rtrfin. wan
laid npon was the registering of the
colored voters. The executive committee
or the club will look after that and see
that not a single citizen will remain on
registered when the time expires.
Speeches were made by Jackson Merry
weather, Samuel Porter, Lewis Morton,
John Bell and Isanc Morton. The meet
ing ended with an eloquent exhortation by
Mr. Porter to the members, bidding them
to cast thi ir votes at the primaries today
to- r,-- tes who would nominate a ticket
for best interests of the Republican
THE DIRTIEST MAN ON EARTH.
He Was in Cell No. 3 at the Central
Station Home Yesterday.
"Too dirty to walk the streets" is the
charge written on the police docket after
the name of Abrubam Smith, a tramp of
the most pronounced type whom Lieuten
ant Williams picked up on Main avenue
early yesterday morning.
A peep into cell 8 where the vagrant was
incarcerated proved beyond doubt that
the lieutenant's charge was well grounded.
A dirtier, more degraded or disgusting
looking specimen of humanity would be
bard to picture.
He looked as if be had been sleeping
about a culm pile since the deluge and
hadn't had a bath since. It was decided
to clean him up with the aid of an axe and
a hose and set him to work on the chain
THE DEVIL HAD HIM.
So David Bowen of Harrison Avenue
Said and He Was Afraid He Would
"Officer, lock me up; I am going
crazy and I feel that if I am not taken
eare of I will commit suicide." These
words were addressed to Officer Feeney
on Lackawanna avenue yesterday after
noon by David Bowen, of Harrison
avenue, a very respectable looking and
apparently well educated man of mid
dle age. He was very nervous and bis
face was fiery red. as if be was afilloted
with a rush of blood to the head. He
talked rationally and aoted like a per
fectly sane person, and if be did not
make known bis ailment no one would
be led to suspect that there was any
thing peculiar in bis condition.
Tbe officer granted Bowen's odd re
quest and fixed him up as comfortable
as possible in cell No. 2 of the Central
station bouse. He was seen here shortly
afterwards by a Tribune reporter and
told tbe following story:
"I have been out of work for raany
months and I oannot get a job. I have
family troubles and financial troubles
and between them all I am on the verge
of insanity. This morning tbe devil
got the best of me and I started to
wards the railroad with the intention
of throwing myself in front of a train,
but something stopped me and I ran
away. When I cooled down I deter
mined to give myself up so as to pre-
vent myself from taking my life. I
have always lived a good life and 1 am
Cot afraid to meet God, but I am afraid
that I will do away with myself. Oh!
It is only a s hort step to insanity. "
His relation of this pitiful story was
In broken sentences and was given
with mental exertion, just as it be wss
having short lapses of insanity, He
held bis bands to his temples and fre
quently exclaimed. ''My head will
burst 1" "My hair is ou firel" and the
Tbe police will have a medioal ex
amination condueted to determine what
is the best method of dealing with his
singular case, i Bowen did not have tbe
sigu of liquor abont him, and It is said
that be is a very temperate man in
